A fun storyline often mentioned during Braves games this season is Freddie Freeman's ineptitude against Marlins pitching. It obviously isn't fun to Freeman. But the fact that such a good hitter is struggling this much against one team raises eyebrows.

For the second consecutive game, Augusta rallied in the eighth inning to win by one run. The GreenJackets got a little help this time.

 

Two consecutive singles opened the inning for Augusta, down 2-1. With runners on the corners, Chris Lofton grounded to the hole between shortstop and third base for an RBI single to tie the game at 2. On the same play, Kannapolis shortstop Tyler Shryock threw the ball into right field attempting a force out at second base.
